Two instances of remarks and non remarks to people one barely knows.

I was walking behind two women, late 20s or early 30s.  I kind of knew one of them, barely, who spoke these words “God.  I want to have sex right now.”  That is, I suppose, good news for her boyfriend in short order — or maybe bad news? — but I had half a mind to make an utterance along the lines of “All right.  Let’s go.”  But I of course didn’t, because I only barely knew her and wouldn’t have gotten away with that surprised joke.

I was at a grocery store, and departed from the store clerk when he gave me, “Have a good day, Justin.”  I was surprised, and looked over.  I didn’t know him — I assume he knew me from sometime or other in some point in the past (or present).  In this particular case, it would’ve been a good idea to say that a few second earlier to give me a probing chance of scratching my itch of curiosity.

    If you used a loyalty club card, the cashier just read your name off the bottom of the receipt.

    Nope. That would’ve made sense, and is the habit when that happens. In this case, it’s just “something or other” which either will or will not be addressed.
